Spring Branch, Texas — Pronghorn Overland Gear, manufacturer of high performance, US-made expedition and off-road gear, begins production of the new Modular Front-End System for the Toyota Tacoma (MFES-Tacoma) and also announces introductory group-buy discount program for the MFES-Tacoma.
MFES-Tacoma Enters Production
The MFES-Tacoma brings Pronghorn Overland Gear’s proven modular front-end system design to the off-road capable Toyota Tacoma (2005-2015 models). The MFES-Tacoma brings many of the high performance and high-functionality innovations found on their popular MFES-JK system (for the Jeep Wrangler) to the Toyota Tacoma platform. These include Pronghorn’s innovative fully-modular design, with five interchangeable configurations, and 6061-T6 aluminum construction to deliver high-strength, lightweight performance for severe-duty off-road and expedition applications. All MFES systems feature four levels of high-performance recovery points (ranging from 17.5K to 45K pound load capacities), as well as their innovative GearMount™ Accessory System, which offers a wide variety of winch and accessory mounting options. The GearMount Accessory System is also compatible with the upcoming Modular Rear-End System (MRES), and Side Rail System; along with our forthcoming accessory line, including cargo racks, work and cook tables, motorcycle racks, and more. All Pronghorn Overland Gear components are US-made and feature a full lifetime warranty.
Not every expedition and off-road vehicle is going to need the same front-end system, that’s why the MFES-Tacoma is available in 5 configurations. Your trails may be about thick brush and possible animal strikes. If so, meet the full grill and headlight protection of our C5 configuration. Desert and open country more your terrain? The C1 system may be just what you need. Pronghorn’s fully modular design offers 5 interchangeable configurations letting you design the system you need. Then easily upgrade and reconfigure as your expedition and off-road requirements change, easily reconfiguring the system using simple hand tools. They can also easily add various recovery and functionality accessories as needed. View all 5 configurations on the company’s website.
“Our company motto at Pronghorn is simple—zero compromises design,” said Trey Hermann, Director of Design and Development, who also serves as the company’s CEO. “We design and manufacture our products for severe-duty applications, using only top materials and we build 100% of it in the USA.”
The MFES-Tacoma is constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum and is engineered to meet or exceed the strength of a comparable steel bumper at approximately 60% the weight. According to Hermann, “Our view is that expedition and off-road gear does not need to be the technological equivalent of an anvil. It should provide all the strength, protection and functionality required for the job without dramatically increasing the weight of the vehicle. Extra weight reduces critical cargo capacity and adversely effects vehicle handling, on and off-road.” The MFES-Tacoma, like the MFES-JK (Jeep Wrangler applications) is built for the serious expedition and off-road user who demands the highest performance and highest functionality they can get from their gear.”
